ayotte's amendment, which -- to which there may or may not be a second-degree or side-by-side amendment offered. and after that matter is disposed of, we would hope then and expect then to move to a hagan amendment. and in between, it is our intent to offer cleared amendments. i'll let senator mccain join me on this, but these are amendments which have been cleared. people have a chance overnight to look at them and see if there is any reason that they want roll call votes or voice votes on these. and if there are, we expect they're going to have to come down and object and vote on those matters. but our staff works hard. we work with the committees of jurisdiction. we work with people who we believe have any interest in these amendments. we have perhaps 50 or 100 amendments which we're looking at. we want to accommodate senators. we also want to accommodate potential opponents. we have done our best to do both. sponsors and opponents. that is our plan for tonight and for tomorrow morning, except that we would then ask that senator hagan be recognized tonight to speak on an amendment. n

with his shadow, lindsey graham, and their new third amigo, new hampshire senator kelly ayotte, they released a joint statement today, praising the cease-fire declaration, but then adding were for good measure, quote, what happens in the middle east will impact america's vital national security interests for the foreseeable future and stronger, smarter american leadership is desperately needed. smarter leadership! take it from john mccain. remember, john mccain's big idea on foreign policy at the moment is that we should not have a secretary of state at all right now. john mccain suggesting that he will personally block anybody from being confirmed as secretary of state in the second term of the obama administration, because according to john mccain, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who's a likely candidate for secretary of state, she once said something wrong on the sunday shows. in the days after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, back in september, susan rice went on the sunday shows and gave the administration's intelligence agency-approved talking points, explaining

with senators mccain, graham and kelly ayotte saying in part in the course of the meeting we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect in the key respect. there was no protester demonstration in benghazi. while we certainly wish that we had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. we stressed neither i nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the american people at any stage in this process. and administration updated congress and the american people as our assessments involve. -- the fall. that's a statement from a ambassador rice. >> negotiations continue with president obama and congressional leaders about the fiscal cliff. we took your phone calls this morning on "washington journal" about that. >> host: at the daily news conference at the white house, jay carney, the spokesman there was asked about liberals who are advocating going off the so-called fiscal cliff. here's what he had to say
